Steve Ferrel


Steve and Tony Ferrel, began
Kite Studio in the summer of 1989. Well known throughout the kiting community, their store is recognized as the FIRST premier source for all kitebuilding supplies and information. Occupying two buildings that cover over 2,300 square feet, Kite Studio is a kite builders paradise. Everyone is welcome to stop by for a visit to rummage through the bins, shelves, and boxes for every kind of kite supply imaginable.

Flat Kites are Steve's specialty. He enjoys appliqué and tries different approaches in layering to create his own style. In 1997 he made and donated the kite pictured below ("Tern into a Dolphin") to the American Kitefliers Association for their annual auction. A one-of-a-kind kite that brought the AKA a whopping $1,300.00.
 

In addition to selling supplies for kites, banners, models, and other markets, Steve has been involved in creating unique fabric structures. Some of these projects included jobs for: Eric Clapton, Mariah Carey, Woodstock 94 and the Spin Doctors. His contributions to kite clubs have been numerous. Including serving on board of directors for the American Kitefliers Association, chairing the AKA Kite Making Competitions Committee, Head Judge for AKA's National Convention since 1997, and providing judging services for festivals all over the country.

Away from work Steve likes adventuring with his dog Bayta. He enjoys long hikes in the woods, horseback riding, bicycling, home remodeling, reading,  cooking, tasting wines, IPA's, and occasionally relaxing with a fine cigar.
